25-year-old sergeant la david johnson. >> overnight in south florida hundreds of people including friends, family and just complete strangers, they all showed up for a public viewing. sergeant johnson leaves behind two children and a pregnant wife. >> incredibly sad. meanwhile, this morning we're learning more about the ambush in which sergeant johnson and his three fellow soldiers were killed back on october 4th in a country many americans didn't know we had military forces. >> there have been conflicts reports as to what happened there and general mattis went to capitol hill to brief senator john mccain demanding more information and comes amidst a fresh war of words from the white house and a congresswoman who listened in on the phone call between the president and sergeant johnson's wife. >> reporter: good morning. we are learning a lot more about that deadly ambush. it took place 17 days ago, some democrats are already calling it
7:03 am
still ray lot we don't know. >> mr. president did you authorize the mission in niger? >> thank you all very much. >> reporter: president trump has been uncharacteristically tight-lipped about the tragic mission that cost the lives of four american soldiers, three of them green berets. lawmakers on capitol hill want answers. senator john mccain threatened to use subpoenas to get them. on friday defense secretary james mattis showed up in person to brief mccain. >> i felt we're not getting sufficient amount of information and we are clearing a lot of that up now. >> reporter: here's what we know about the attack. it took place october 4th near the village of tongo tongo. they met with a village elder and during that meeting, the soldiers had an inkling of danger. the hair on the back of their neck stood u
7:04 am
motorcycles raced out of the village. the intelligence official tells us the troops felt like the elder was trying to stall them. sure enough, armed fighters soon hit them with everything from the woods on both sides of the road. small arms, vehicle-mounted weapons, even mortars. the u.s. team wasn't expecting combat. their vehicles unarmored. they had no u.s. air support and french air carat didn't get there until a half hour into the firefight. to date the president has not said a thing about the mission itself. instead, the conversation this week unraveled over how best to honor fallen troops and console their families with white house chief of staff general john kelly ultimately stepping in to smack down a florida congresswoman who listened to the president's call to a gri e grieving widow. kelly is a gold star father himself. on friday the white house press secretary went
7:05 am
suggest that kelly should have the last word on the matter. >> if you want to get into a debate with a four-star marine general i think that that's something highly inappropriate. >> reporter: the president called him an elegant man adding that he's doing a fantastic job. >> he was so offended that a woman would be -- that somebody would be listening to that call. he was -- he actually couldn't believe it. >> reporter: bottom line, we till do not have a complete picture about what happened in niger. the pentagon is conducting an investigation with the fbi's help and the senate armed services under john mccain is likely to hold hearings, dan and paula. >> a whole lot of questions and something else, david, steve bannon was speaking overnight at the california gop convention. he had some pretty strong words aimed at former president george w. bush. can you tell us about that? >> reporter: that's right. bannon was appearing at the california gop convention and to
7:06 am
took a veiled swipe at him in a speech that he gave in houston on thursday. here's what bannon said. >> president bush to me embarrassed himself. his speech writer wrote a highfalutin speech. it's clear he didn't understand anything he was talking about. just like it was when he was president of the united states. [ applause ] i want to apologize up front to any of the bush folks outside in this audience, okay. because there's not been a more destructive presidency than george bush's. >> reporter: not shy about speaking his mind, steve bannon. he has been making the rounds ahead of the midterm elections and calls himself trump's outside wing man. dan and paula. >> david, thank you very much. let's bring in abc news political contributor kristen soltis anderson. ksa, good morning. >> good morning. >> let's start with bannon's comments overnight. do you think he's counterpunching with some sort of tacit approval from inside
7:07 am
himself and does the speech from former president bush in which he made some veiled jabs at president trump, does that present a serious political member for the white house? >> i don't think president george w. bush presents a problem for the white house insofar as the republican party is trump's party. the world worview about what bu and trump think we should be doing are different. george works bush's policy is not the same as trump's kind of merge first mantra so it's not a surprise that these two men have very different world views. but what is different is that you've got a crowd of republicanscheering someone insulting a former -- the most recent former republican president and the room is applauding. it's almost as if steve bannon could have been saying the same things about obama. you would expect that red meat would get that reaction. here he's talking about someone within the part
7:08 am
astonishing. >> the political discourse and in-fighting is astonishing. the sparring between trump, his chief of staff john kelly and congresswoman wilson, so kelly asserted this week that congresswoman wilson bragged about securing money for a florida fbi building during an 2015 speech but video surfaced of that speech and she did no such thing, now, the white house wants this entire story line to go away including the phone call to the family of fallen soldier la david johnson. but how will that happen? >> it may be the case the white house wants the story to go away. i'm not convinced the president does. think about where we were a little over a year ago, you had a gold star family criticizing donald trump on a partisan stage and donald trump seemed to relish that fight. even as everyone around him told him don't go after a gold star family. this isn't going to be a good look. he
7:09 am
a partisan adversary, a congresswoman from the other party, let's go after her with all we've got. the white house may want it to go away, focus back on tax reform but i'm not convinced the president himself does. >> interesting insight as always, kristen soltis anderson, thank you very much. we appreciate it. we do want to share a programming note when an exclusive abc news interview. senator john mccain will pay a visit to "the view" monday at 11:00 eastern on abc. >> as most people know his daughter is now co-hosting the "view" and it is her birthday monday. in tampa a terrifying story. three fatally shot and police believe there's a single gunman to plame. >> three separate locations but all in the same neighborhood and police are hoping this surveillance video can stop a killer. abc's maggie rulli is on the story for us this morning. maggie, good morning to you. >> reporter: police are desperate for clues and right now say they have no
7:10 am
obvious motive and no idea who could be next. this morning, the urgent search for a killer who police sigh is terrorizing a florida neighborhood. three people gunned down within the last two weeks. >> please speak up because you don't know if it's going to happen to you. >> reporter: the parents of the latest victim sobbing overcome with grief authorities struggling to make sense of these heinous crimes. >> you look at the time frame, the proximity that there is no apparent motive, that they are alone, our victims are alone at the time. it's clear to me they're all linked. >> reporter: 20-year-old nab 0 oa had autism returning home from work when he found himself on the wrong bus in the wrong neighborhood. >> he was like don't worry, i'll be home quick. he said okay. i promise. i didn't hear from him after that. >> reporter: the third murder

naiboa was killed and then benjamin mitchell was killed aren't 9:00 p.m. the second came less than a week later, 32-year-old monica hofffachlt, found hi tampa police on october 13th killed two days earlier. >> she was completely innocent and was targeted by this animal out there. >> reporter: police releasing this surveillance video showing the possible witness walking near where the first shooting happened. police do not want rest accid t accidents to feel like they're being held hostage by whoever is doing it and urging people to turn on their porch lights and to get outside? easier said than done. it's got to be terrifying. thank you. we want to move to the scandal growing over harvey weinstein. >> abc's eva pilgrim has the story. >> reporter: good morning. those accusatns
